Expected Family Contribution 

The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is assigned to you after you submit the FAFSA. It is an index outlining the types of aid you are eligible for. It is not the amount you are expected to pay. Your out-of-pocket expenses may be significantly more or less. This index allows us to see what aid the University can offer you based on federal regulations and our policies. Please note that by 2024-2025, Expected Family Contribution will be called the Student Aid Index.
